  • Wonderful Stay at Whales Tale Cabin

    "The Whales Tale Cabin has breathtaking views and is truly a home with all the amenities. The pictures on the website are exactly what you'll find at this home. It is clean and the location is close to grocery stores and restaurants. We traveled to Arcata, Trinidad, and the Redwood forest. Richard was a wonderful host and checked to make sure everything was ok. My son attends HSU and the home was only 10 minutes from the school. Unfortunately, we did not get a chance to use the spa/hottub, but it looked amazing and offers fabulous views of Mad River and the ocean. I loved sitting on the outside patio watching the wildlife and the evening sunset. I truly hated to leave. If we return to this area, we will definitely see if this home is available. Thank you Richard and family."

  • Great location

    "Rating Details: I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was very clean. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The townhouse had a perfect location for visiting Humboldt State University. Very close to campus, a 3 minute walk on a path through the redwood, or a 3 minute drive if you prefer taking your car. The feel of the place was a bit "old", with a few items broken, and a smell of old house. It was clean and convenient for us, however, and we will hopefully rent again when we visit our daughter at HSU next time. Manager responded on 9/2/2014: Congratulations of you HSU student! Please come and stay at the Arcata Townhouse again when you come to visit! The home is in the Redwood forest which can emit an older musty smell. I will also look for the broken items and replace!"

  • Lovely, Clean Home

    "This is a lovely, clean home. Ann was very responsive to our short notice request. We elected to leave the Arcata Hotel in favor of a quieter, cleaner location and this is IT! We feel totally comfortable and will use this location again if in the area."

  • Great spot for families at graduation

    "We made our last trip to Arcata to celebrate our last HSU graduate. This was by far the most fun we've had as far as properties to stay in. The cabin was equipped and comfortable. We enjoyed quiet time on the deck, reading and having coffee in the morning and then celebrating with our graduate and her friends one evening. We brought along a propane fire pit which allowed us to spend time outdoors in the evening comfortably. Two 80 year old's shared the downstairs bed and we younger 50 something year olds shared the very comfortable living area in the loft. We headed east one afternoon just a short distance and found Mad River, had an enjoyable picnic there one sunny afternoon. At night we found the Blue River (smokey, cough cough) Casino and won some money, too! Farmers Market on Saturday is always a must. I think it would have been nice to have a microwave at the cabin; if only for the reason that we like our coffee HOT! Krista, the owner, rescued us on more than one occasion, she was wonderful to loan us an iron and board, and to open up the cabin when we locked the keys inside...should have paid more attention to that advice to leave key in the lockbox...Almost sad that we don't have any more kids at HSU cause we would definitely rent this place again!!!"
